I have had a few people who loved it out there, I've seen others who bought before construction, then after construction (mainly the townhomes) discovered no storage and wanted to move elsewhere, others who wanted to move because of being so far out. The ones who loved it, liked the lifestyle, but the others felt that it was a limited lifestyle based on what someone else thought their lifestyle should be like. For most though, it the distance to travel to get to work and the schools for their children that make the difference, those two factors are key. The lifestyle characteristics will "blend" as time goes on, the lack of storage is the same in any townhome situation, but distance to work (especially with the gas prices the way they are) and quality and reputation of the schools for their children will never change.
The housing market right now is moving - we're seeing a lot of buyers out there, granted some are getting overwhelmed with their choices and not making a choice, but with interest rates on the climb and school getting ready to start in less than 2 months, people are making choices. If you are in an area where there is a lot of choice, they may still not chose you, but then you need to check out your competition and see why they are choosing the other guy - price, how the home is fixed up, location in the development or ??? and then try to better your odds.
